The Nuʻalolo Trail (3.8 miles) is one of the steeper and more technical trails in the area. Like the Awaʻawapuhi Trail, it affords sky-bound views of the Na Pali Coast, but with half the traffic. The trailhead for the Nuʻalolo Trail is just south of the Kokeʻe Museum.
There's a 1400ft drop in the first mile of this hike. The first half has good shade, while the second half can be more exposed. The trail take about five hours round-trip. Remember, what goes up must come down, so save enough water for the hike back up.
